Remarks :Eurasian Collared Dove made nest on tree just behind the our balcony. Most of the time it was sitting on the nest. We saw hardly few time the chicks.May be due to summer it was sitting on them as temperature was around 45 to 46 in Ahmedabad. After few day of this image we saw Shikra on the nest and Shikra take away chicks.- VP & PM
